The resistance of a wire is inversely proportional to the square of its diameter. If an AWG (American wire gauge) size 12 conductor (0.0808in. diameter) has a resistance of 14.8, what will be the resistance of an AWG size 10 conductor (0.1019in. diameter) of the same length and material?

R = (0.0808/0.1019)^2 * 14.8=9.31 Ohms.
